Schmidt-Seeger GmbH is now Bühler GmbH01/12/2012 Uzwil – In September 2010, Schmidt-Seeger GmbH was acquired by the Bühler Technology Group. Now that the integration has been completed, the company will in the future appear solely under the name Bühler GmbH. The acquisition of this German grain management specialist has enabled Bühler to significantly increase its conveying, cleaning, drying, dedusting, and storage competencies, especially in the area of grain collection. These capabilities are now united in the Grain Logistics business unit. The new Grain Logistics business unit has its center of competence at the site of the former company Schmidt-Seeger GmbH in Beilngries, north of Munich. Since the acquisition by Bühler, a joint integra-tion team has been busy defining the future form of collaboration and the potential synergies. The operating business processes are not affected. Nothing will change for customers and other business partners as a result of this renaming into Bühler GmbH, and the usual contacts will be retained.
The new business unit meets the challenges of ensuring optimal grain supplies as a consequence of global population growth and climate changes. Our joint customers can in the future obtain further opti-mized and especially integrated solutions along their value-added chains from a single source. This is a significant contribution to quality assurance and retraceability of foods. In addition, the merging has expanded the global customer service network.
At www.buhlergroup.com/grain-logistics, the Grain Logistics business unit also presents its machine design adapted to the Bühler colors in addition to the new joint range of products and services.
Bühler is a global leader in the field of process engineering, in particular production technologies and services for making foods and advanced materials. Bühler operates in over 140 countries and has a global payroll of about 7800. In fiscal 2010, Bühler Group generated sales of CHF 1907 million.
